  Abstract: The experiment was conducted in the Department of Pharmacology, Faculty of Veterinary Science, Bangladesh Agricultural University, Mymensingh, for a period of 28 days to study the effects of indigenous medicinal plants (neem and pineapple) against gastro-intestinal nematodiasis in sheep. The sheep is the source of animal protein, hide, meat and milk. Parasitism is a serious problem of livestock where nutrition and sanitation are poor. In Bangladesh, gastro-intestinal nematodiasis causing a significant economic loss as a result of animal diarrhoea, stunted growth, decreased milk production, emaciation, loss of working ability and even death. Fifteen sheep were selected from fifty five sheep for this study which was heavily infected with gastro-intestinal nematodes marked by McMaster method. Sheep were treated with neem and pineapple (10% water extract of leaves). A significant (p < 0.01) reduction of EPG count was found on 7th, 14th, 21st and 28th day of neem (47.03, 46.27, 41.82 and 37.60%) and pineapple (41.13, 39.27, 36.32 and 32.18%) treated sheep. The EPG count of untreated control group were significantly (p < 0.01) increased about 7.88, 11.45, 20.15 and 30.26% on 7th, 14th, 21st and 28th day, respectively. After treatment with neem and pineapple, Total Erythrocyte Count (TEC), Hemoglobin (Hb) content and Packed Cell Volume (PCV) were increased significantly (p < 0.01 and p < 0.05) in sheep. On the other hand Total Leukocyte Count (TLC) was decreased significantly (p< 0.01 and p < 0.05) in all treated sheep. The body weight was increased significantly (p < 0.01 and p < 0.05) in neem and pineapple treated sheep. On the other hand body weight was decreased in untreated control group. Neem and pineapple (10% water extract of leaves) may be used as moderate anthelmintics against gastro-intestinal nematodiasis in sheep.

  The experiment was conducted to compare the hypoglycemic efficacy of Neem, Karala and Nayantara with that of Glibenclamide on normal rat. In addition to that the experiment was conducted to compare the effects on body weight of rat after administration of those drugs. After 14 days during treatment with those drugs following observation were made (1) Neem when administered orally @ 500 mg kg-1 b.wt. significantly (p>0.01) decreased blood glucose level (7.52 to 3.98 mol L-1) and body weight also significantly (p<0.01) increased (153.20 to 155.80 mg kg-1) (2) Karala when administered orally @ 200 mg kg-1 b.wt. significantly (p>0.01) decreased blood glucose level (8.96 to 4.82 mol L-1) and body also significantly (p<0.01) increased (169.20 to 177.20 mg kg-1) (3) Nayantara when administered orally @ 500 mg kg-1 b.wt. significantly (p>0.01) decreased blood glucose level (6.80 to 4.44 mol L-1) and body also significantly (p<0.01) increased (120.40 to 140.40 mg kg-1) and Glibenclamide when administered orally @ 0.25 mg kg-1 b.wt. significantly (p>0.01) decreased blood glucose level (7.20 to 6.61 mol L-1) and body also significantly (p<0.01) increased (164.00 to 171.40 mg kg-1). From this experiment it is concluded that Neem (Azadirachta indica), Karala (Momordica charantia) and Nayantara (Cathranthus roseus) is potent hypoglycemic agent as Glibenclamide.
